Creating Signs and Labels
The simplest sign is created by entering the text you require, selecting the printer to use, and printing it.
The POS will scale and center this text to be as large as possible on the paper, so you will get output similar to the following
SPECIAL $5.99 Today Only
Whatever you enter is literally printed on the page. If you want a blank line, type a blank line. If we wanted the sign to display the words "today only" in smaller text while making the word "SPECIAL" as large as possible, we can instruct the printer to use an exact font-size as shown.
SPECIAL $5.99 >fontsize 25mm Today Only
If we want the word "SPECIAL" in red, we use a directive to say that. Once it switches to red, everything is red from that point on, so we also add one to switch back to black.
Whenever we start a line with ">", this is processed as a command for the printer, not text to display
>color red SPECIAL >color black $5.99 >fontsize 25mm Today Only
While this is great for static signs and labels, we actually want to include the product name and it's price. So that we can save it and use it as a predefined format. Then we can simply select a product and "Print a Special label" without needing to type anything. To do this, we use the "<" command, which tells the printer to fetch the next word from the POS product, customer, account etc. The "/$" with unitprice in the example says that we expect a monetary amount and would like it formatted with 2 decimal places.
If you save this format, you can then use the "print label" button againt a product to generate a sign or label.
